“There was a point in my life where I wasn’t able to pay the phone bill,” Jeezy said in a statement. “Now as a businessman and entrepreneur to be able to partner with Freddie, someone who overcame similar life obstacles, and to give people more access to handheld technology at an affordable price, it’s a truly blessing.”
According to the press release, the F3 5G-ready cell phone features a 6.2″ edge to edge 4k display with state-of-the-art 18 Megapixel dual cameras. The phone can be used internationally and is compatible with any phone carrier.

“As the youngest African-American to own and operate an independent, U.S. based telecommunications company, I built Figgers Communications on the premise that telecommunications access should be attainable for everyone,” Figgers said. “The Jeezy/Figgers Wireless partnership is a natural evolution of two men who experienced some of the same challenges during our upbringing but rose above those circumstances to make our mark.”
